    Default Fantasy Football '15

    It's that time of the year again, women and children!

    I've just sent out invites (if you didn't get one due to an email address SNAFU, let me know and I can PM you the details) to every player we had last year for our $30 pay league, and if there is enough interest and the league is full with many more interested, I would definitely run a second league if need be. But let's concentrate on the first league... first. The cost and payouts will be the same. $30 entry fee, winner gets $330, 2nd place gets their money back. The rest of us/you suck eggs for a few months.

    I've set up the usual, a 12 team live draft, standard = snaking order, happening during the last week of August, anywhere around 8/26, 8/26 or 8/27. It definitely won't be on the weekend or on a Friday night. The exact draft date and time will be TBD by the owners involved. Tentatively I put down 7PM Pacific / 10PM Eastern on Thursday, August 27th.

    The time and date for the draft is up for debate, hell, even the KIND of draft, along with any other suggestions are all open for discussion - scoring settings, etc., can all be discussed here - or we can just roll with last year's settings. (as they currently are in the Yahoo league page)

    Last year's Championship game had Bobert take me down in the championship game, unfortunately. For the second year in a row I landed second place! Bobert joins the Champion's Club, where he presides along with TickleMeElmo who won it in 2013, Aphxtwinin who won it in 2012, and 2011's Champion, Playadelwes. Who will join that exclusive club this year? Is it YOU?

    Without further adieu, let's get to brass tacks here. Who is in?


    Coachella Championship '15 Participants


    Fourthisto (Sorry Steven Jackson) Confirmed, signed up through the Yahoo site, PAID!
    ManImCool (Luckbox) - Confirmed, signed up.
    TickleMeElmo (GOD HATES JAGS) - Confirmed, signed up.
    santasutt (UCan'tNotBeatTheJets) - Confirmed, signed up.

    zachattacks11 (zachattacks11) - Invited
    ThomThom (Homo4Romo) - Invited



    Waiting list:

    1) ?


    If someone from last year can't play this year, no worries, as I'm sure we'll be able to find someone else to take your spot. For this reason, if a non-2014 player has interest in playing this year, let me know and you'll be added to the waiting list in the order in which your request was posted.

    Once the league is full, I'll send out payment instructions. It'll be the typical Paypal deal. Once everyone has paid, we'll set the draft order and be well on our way to another fun year.

    Any questions, fire away.

    Let's rock.

    This is my annual suggestion to switch to PPR of any value, only to have the suggestion quickly voted against by a few and outright ignored by most. Especially with the way the RB pool is looking this year.

    And thanks as always to the great commish for setting this up.

    UCan'tNotBeatTheJets is signed up for another try.

    That draft date works for me as well.

    I've been thinking about this, I'd be up for doing a half point PPR adder this year. What do you other guys think?

    I'm renewed. I'm down with .5 ppr. Anything to increase the minimal scoring in our league.

    That's 4 of 8 returning owners from last year in favor of a half point per reception this year.... do I hear a couple more votes in favor of this change? Let's get six votes and it'll be done.

    So far we've got 10 confirmed teams, and 2 teams from last year who haven't signed up.

    As soon as the league is full with 12 teams, I'll send out the Paypal payment instructions - once everyone has paid, the draft order will be set!

    The half point PPR option is still on the table, and currently has four votes for "yea". If you're interested in having this stat added to our league, chime in or we'll just roll with the settings from last year.

    Full PPR is a bit overkill for WRs I think. I personally think 0.25 PPR is best but 0.5 is fine too.

    This. Personally, I think PPR is a bad scoring metric that doesn't always equate to production on the field. In full PPR a reception of -9yds is still a positive scoring play which is pretty ridiculous. I'd be okay with 0.25 PPR.

    It depends on the philosophy of your scoring system. If you want it to be as balanced as possible with no position to be largely more valuable than another, stuff like PPR works pretty well. If you want the system to reproduce on field production as closely as possible, PPR is not the way to go. Both philosophies together don't really mesh well.

    Can we consider FAAB too? In the normal waiver system, losing a player out to someone just because they only put 2-3 waiver claims out all year is bullshit. People claim that's a strategy but barely. FAAB actually rewards owners who put in time and effort and know exactly what they want, not for dumb luck.

    I fully support this. Having a budgeted waiver system is so much better than the continual rolling list.
